No Redpolls Today

The Common Redpolls were here early this morning but then soon departed en masse. It soon became apparent why.

This immature Sharp-shinned Hawk (Accipiter striatus) has been terrorizing my Mom and Dad's backyard this winter but I haven't observed him much in my yard. I guess he just needed a reason, and with the arrival of the redpolls he figured he would check out the lunch opportunities here.
